Re: Today Adam Kokesh Filed Papers Seeking the Libertarian Presidential Nomination. Then He Was Arrested on Drug Charges

There you go. Questioning the integrity of Our Dear Leaders. (Or is it Great Leaders? I keep forgetting.) Real people Who Understand the True Situation know that Our Dear Leaders are TOP MEN (and Hillary, but I repeat myself), who only have Our Best Interests at Heart and would Never Violate Their S...

Re: Spearfishing With Luke: The Last Jedi thread with spoilers!

I am going to go full MGTOW here for a moment. By the end of the movie, (and I agree it was interminable: I had to pee really bad by the time Luke Skywalkered in) I was starting to wonder: Is there a single decent male with brains in the entire Galaxy Far, Far Away? Po was a dumb jock. Finn was the ...

Re: When journalism goes bad

Conservatives say follow the law and be compliant with the police because that actually works for the vast majority of white people. So in their view, since it works for them, those complaining about it aren't doing it right or have ulterior motives. Yes. I am a white male over 65. My experiences w...

Re: When journalism goes bad

There is conservative intersectionality with black church folk. It is a thing. See Prop 8 in Cali. If not for the whole racism thing that chases people into Team Blue,, so-cons would be even stronger in this country. Agreed. I think the GOP will ultimately turn towards someone like Huckabee. He's a...

I'll be honest, I don't see a lot of bleeding hearts in practice. I hear calls for stiffer punishment for opioids daily around here. Yeah, this. Outside of publications based in NYC or CA, I'm not sure calls for a better approach to opioids are all that common. Arizona is certainly quite content to...

Re: Orange is the new President

Trump's 'cognitive tests' just gave me one more reason to question the validity of intelligence testing. It's not an intelligence test. It's a basic mental functioning test. The doctor confirmed that he's coherent enough to know who he is and where he is. He can name animals and replicate basic sha...

Re: Orange is the new President

I think 'white middle class' includes going to church (not mosque or temple), eating American food (not curry and shit) and speaking exclusively unaccented (unless the accent is a local accent) English. Exactly. "Weird" looking people aren't that big a deal for most part if they have similar custom...

Re: When journalism goes bad

It feels like the racist veneer description is a bit too simple. By analogy the left just wants free stuff paid for by people they don’t like and left elites want the power to decide who gets what. There is some truth there but I’m not going to say that’s all there is. I think conservatives worried...

It adorable that Tom Cotton thinks he can be president. He's basically Ted Cruz without charm, looks or charisma.

I mean ordinal. Like this is Trump's 70th worst scandal or some shit like that. What's the equivalent 70th worst scandal for Obama? Going on ESPN to fill out a March Madness bracket?
For Trump, I think we're going to have to expand that spreadsheet beyond 1,000 rows.

So if we were to rank presidential scandals 1 through 1000 for each president, is "Trump banging a porn star 3 months after his son was born" at "Obama wearing a tan suit" or "Obama putting his feet up on the desk"?
I think it is more on the level of the David Cameron 'Pig-gate' scandal.
